Saw the movie today and really enjoyed it. Really well done.

Haven't read through this thread so not sure if anyone else has mentioned it, but the closest I can come to a nitpick is CA's mask/helmet. It just didn't look right to me. A little to square-ish on top, and the nose should have been covered either more or less. Where they ended the mask right in the middle of the nose just looked strange.

Nah, it's cool. Just check out these images. The mask is always halfway up the nose.

I mentioned it upthread. Actually I thought the whole costume was slightly off in some way although it's his cowl/helmet that stood out most. It does look consistent with the comics, but maybe it needed a little more tweaking.

I much preferred his WW2 costume in his standalone film.

I guess it's just one of those bits that doesn't translate well when seen live.

Matt Salinger's costume in the 1990 Captain America movie was the same way.

I think they should just give him a bit more of an Ultimates style. A few more straps and a more sturdy helmet over the top of his cowl.

Just random tweets about sell out shows during bargain Tuesdays for Avengers.

Having crossed $700m in 13 days and had the 2nd best Monday with $18.8m these tweets just show things aren't slowing down for the film.

Trying to watch the Avengers on a Tuesday seemed like a good idea. How the hell is it sold out. WTF!!!
Curious how wide spread this will be.

I've heard that The Avengers was tracking to be the biggest film of the year (even above The Dark Knight Rises), but the steady level of business is still impressive. Hopefully it provides Whedon with the opportunity to make more movies. I was rather ambivalent by his efforts here, but he's a talented writer and a decent director that deserves to be working.

Here is an article from Newsarama that speculates on just how big Avengers box-office totals could get.

Here is an article from Comic Vine arguing as to why Black Widow should get her own movie.

I've already said I'm game for this.

Let's assume that like Hulk, Marvel Studios will be hearing this via various means. What is the best way to ensure that should you place BW and Hulk back into solo movies that they take off?

I'm thinking since it's known that Cap2 will flow out of Avengers that a few good and further character building moments happen. Thus continuing to whet fandom and general audiences appetites for her solo film.

For Hulk, Banner takes Stark up and drops by those top 10 floors of R&D candy.

Black Widow and Hawkeye can be further developed in Captain America 2, which is purported to be about Cap's adventures with S.H.I.E.L.D. That should create more interest for their spinoff films, if any.

The biggest "No shit!" in movie history...

Avengers' Sequel Is Officially On

In case there was any doubt, there will be a sequel to the superhero blockbuster "The Avengers."
Disney CEO Bob Iger made the announcement Tuesday, stating during a conference call that a second installment of the men-in-tights epic is in the works.


Though Iger's statement marked the first official announcement of an "Avengers" sequel, it's hardly surprising -- the Joss Whedon-directed "Avengers," which opened in the U.S. May 4, has already amassed a global box-office take in excess of $700 million.
In addition, Disney has three other Marvel superhero films on its slate. Next year, the third "Iron Man" film arrives in May and a "Thor" sequel is set for November 2013. The sequel to "Captain America: The First Avenger" is planned for April in 2014.
